Good Cheer: Quick Quotes Card Inspiration
Hello, Alicia with you today with some card inspiration. I used a special fold to create some good cheer for the upcoming holiday season. I used a die to create this side step card but prior to owning it, I followed simple instructional videos to make several different styles of step cards. I used a papers and a sentiment from the new Holly Jolly Holiday collection.
Once the fold was cut from plain card stock, I followed these steps to complete the card:
A tip for creating detail die cuts is to add layers of papers, bling, ribbon and inking making simple paper pop. I used different color papers for the inside segment of the lights. I also used different reds for the berries on the holly. I added glossy accents to both to add life.
